GCB Bank Limited (formerly known as Ghana Commercial Bank) is the largest independent financial institution in Ghana. The company started in 1953 as the Bank of the Gold Coast to provide banking services to the emerging nation for socioeconomic development. The bank had been wholly owned by the Government of Ghana until 1996. Today, the Government's ownership stands at 21.4% while individual and institutional holdings take up the rest. Social Security and National Insurance Trust is currently the largest shareholder in the company with 29.8% holding, followed in third place by the UK investment firm SCBN/Northern Trust Global Service Ltd with a distant 6.6%. With over 150 branches and 11 agencies in all regions of the country, GCB Bank is, in effect, the widest-networked commercial bank in Ghana. In 2013, the bank adopted an internal change program that overhauled its brand, resulting in the new name the following year.

      John, I'd advise that you contact your broker since GCB has been paying dividends regularly, the latest being 38p per share announced in May 2017.
